By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Countries that have used COVID-19 vaccines manufactured by Chinese companies are seeing surges of the disease according to the Washington Examiner.
Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines are being used in poorer countries but are not considered as effective as those used in richer countries.
The World Health Organization said the Sinovac vaccine has an efficacy rate of about 51%, while Sinopharm’s checks in at about 78%.
This has translated into people still getting sick with COVID-19 in highly vaccinated populations, even though it keeps people largely out of the hospital said the article.
Four of the countries that have relied on Chinese vaccines but have seen an upsurge of cases are the Seychelles off the coast of East Africa, Bahrain, Chile, and Mongolia said the Washington Examiner.
